Biography

DISHWALLA. A platinum selling, award winning band with a career spanning nearly 2 decades and 5 albums.

In 1994 Dishwalla signed to A&M Records and immediately began their successful launch into the music scene with a rendition of It’s Going to Take Some Time that was chosen as a single for The Carpenters tribute album, If I Were a Carpenter, a live performance on the Jon Stewart Show, and MTV coverage.

When A&M released Dishwalla’s debut album, Pet Your Friends, it lit up the airwaves in 1996 with their edgy smash-hit single Counting Blue Cars. With a gritty attitude and edgy musicianship reminiscent of past musical legends, Dishwalla’s Alt-Rock sound was enough for music fans to crown Counting Blue Cars one of the most requested songs of that year. The track earned them a Billboard Award for “Best Rock Song” for 1996 as well as two ASCAP Awards for “Rock Track of the Year” in both 1996 and 1997, driving Pet Your Friends to sell more than a million copies worldwide.

Standing amongst Rock royalty, the band shared the stage with the likes of No Doubt, Sheryl Crow, Cheap Trick, Blind Melon, Lenny Kravitz, Gin Blossoms, and the Goo Goo Dolls, including a signature performance at the infamous Woodstock in 1998. Later that year, the band released its follow-up album, And You Think You Know What Life’s About, and recorded a fresh version of Policy of Truth for Depeche Mode’s tribute disc, For the Masses.

    It doesn't necessarily mean they're bad. There are several bands with tremendous talent who have never had any hits.

    Hey, I just meant that the term "one-hit wonder" itself implies some kind of negative connotation, like the band was able to write only one decent song which became a hit, and the other stuff of theirs is far from good. Can't say for sure, but that's the way most people think, I guess. Yeah, they weren't the "kings of 90's", that's true, but they don't deserve to be called a one-hit wonder in the common sense of the word - that's my point.

    "Pet Your Friends is the debut album by American alternative rock band Dishwalla. It was released in 1995 on A&M Records. The album produced the hit single "Counting Blue Cars" (the third single off the album and only one to gain widespread success), which was a Top 40 favorite. However, the song also caused the group to gain somewhat of a one-hit wonder status because of it." :|

    They had one hit.... What do you think a one-hit wonder is?

    I don't think you shoud call a band a one-hit wonder based on how much airplay they got. There's more to Dishwalla than "Counting Blue Cars", man, there's much more than that.

    I don't think you can call a one-hit wonder the "king of the 90s".

    So sad that they and so many other pop-rock bands from 90's perished in the great Dishwallocaust of 1997.
